Day By Day

Day by day. We get better and better. Til’ we can’t be beat. Won’t be beat.

At Nebraska, our people are our greatest asset. Fan support from our season ticket holders and contributions from our donors will always be our largest and most important financial resource.

Nebraska Athletics is financially dependent on Football-related revenue to support the student-athlete experience for all sport programs. In August 2020, Nebraska Athletics projected a $40,000,000 minimum revenue loss due to the reduced 2020 Football season. With the postponement of Big Ten Football this fall, Nebraska Athletics now projects as much as $100,000,000 in revenue shortfall.

The Day by Day Fund will allow for Nebraska Athletics to apply donations to the areas of greatest need during this extremely challenging time. Your investment will support scholarships, recruiting, performance nutrition, medical care, life skills programming, academic support, and more.

Season Ticket Holders

Season ticket holders should have received a link to a questionnaire via email on August 7, 2020 to designate any unused football ticket/parking payments and seat donations to the Day by Day Fund. Season ticket holders can choose to receive 100% tax-deductible credit or receive donor priority points for the full amount of the gift (not tax-deductible). If you have not received this questionnaire, please email or call (402) 472-3111.

Benefits for season ticket holders who invest in the Day by Day Fund include:

  • Respond by August 14th and receive 50 bonus priority points.

    • Priority points are essential in the ticket allocation for high demand games, as seen in 2019 with Nebraska at Colorado, and are utilized for all ticketed sports.
  • What will the additional priority points possibly mean?

    • In the 2020 Football Seat Yourself process, an account with 100 priority points would have moved up nearly 400 slots after receiving the 50 bonus priority points.
  • Commemorative poster recognizing 50 year anniversary of 1970 National Champions, autographed by members of the 1970 team.

  • Exclusive invitation to a 2021 event celebrating the 1970 and 1971 National Championship teams.

Husker Fans

Husker fans who are not season ticket holders can show their support by donating directly to the Day by Day Fund. Non–season ticket holders who donate $150 or more to the fund will also receive the autographed commemorative poster and an invitation to the 2021 event celebrating the 1970 and 1971 National Championship teams.
